It’s too little too late for fish policy, alas, but the EU is trying. It is asking for comment on its Green Paper on Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy. If the Green Paper is too much to tackle, try the Citizens’ Summary. It explains why it’s so important to urge the EU to make sustainability a priority in fish policies.
And the Seafood Choices Alliance publishes a webletter, Afishionado. Its latest issue deals with the effects of climate change on fish migration, invasive species, and ocean acidification. The short articles come with references, which I always appreciate.
Many groups are doing excellent work to promote seafood sustainability. Support what they do!
